Sovereign Acts - Decolonising Methodologies

Research output: Non-textual formOther


Bound and Unbound are four Indigenous women scholars that explore complex ideas of being both bound and free. They challenge us to rethink Sovereign identity and representation through their unique standpoints as artists and Indigenous women. Their work compels a call and response engagement with the broader Aboriginal community. Their ongoing series of performative works Bound and Unbound: Sovereign Acts, forms part of a process of giving back and cultural continuance. Their Sovereign Acts speak back to colonial institutions of power as the dominant repositories of culture/knowledge
